Summer Springs and her twin sister Autumn lived a carefree life of privilege before the infection. They spent most of their time partying through high school and college where they had seemingly endless access to money and impunity from the law. Their father, a political diplomat, spared no expense when it came to the girls and he played a large role in shaping their dismissive and selfish demeanor. As the girls blossomed into egotistical socialites, their lives grew into an endless cycle of pr stunts and jet-setting to nightclubs and music festivals. Meanwhile, their father, who was an American diplomat to Chernarus, received vast amounts of bribe money to keep what was going on at the sealed storage base north of Severograd secret from the American government. Mr. Springs' role in the cover up eventually came to light as the events of the infection unfolded. Though most people were concerned with merely surviving, Mr. Springs had made several enemies who swore to make him suffer. Mr. Springs had paid and bartered his family's way into an underground shelter for the elite, but eventually his enemies found them. Though they were unable to take him, they were able to kidnap Summer and drop her off in the most dangerous place imaginable: Chernarus. Though Summer was left terrified and confused, she used her sharp wit and manipulative nature to get others to help her and keep her safe. She's trying to find the most comfortable lifestyle she can in this savaged world through any means possible.
